We are able to correlate poor physical health with poor nutrition, but most of us don't relate poor nutrition to poor mental health. In recent times, many researches and studies conducted on healthy and mentally ill people seems to indicate that nutritional deficiency of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids, carbohydrates play a large role in setting off and maintenance of depression, bipolar, ocd, schizophrenia, suicidal tendencies and anxiety disorders.
A typical indian diet based on western diets is found to be very low in many nutrients, especially essential vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. A notable feature of the diets of patients suffering from mental disorders is the severity of deficiency in these nutrients. Studies have indicated that daily supplements of vital nutrients are often effective in reducing patients' symptoms. Supplements containing amino acids have also been found to reduce symptoms, as they are converted to neurotransmitters which in turn alleviate depression and other mental health problems.
Most prescription drugs, including the common antidepressants lead to unpleasant side effects. This usually causes the patients to skip their medications. Such noncompliance can be detrimental to the patients recovery. On the other hand, long term use of medication can lead to drug toxicity, which in turn can be life threatening for the patient. An alternate and effective way is to start a diet rich in anti oxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids which will slowly increase the levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrin and gaba, resulting in reduction of symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses. Patients and their families can talk to their psychiatrists, nutritionists and counsellors to guide them through the recommended doses of most nutritional supplements and diets.
1. Omega 3 fatty acids: daily intake of omega 3 in the form of eating fish, olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, sesame seeds, omega3 capsules can produce precursors responsible for producing natural neuro transmitters which will act as anti depressants. Most of the grey matter in the brain is made up of lipids and a diet rich in lipids can enhance the functioning of the brain and mind.
2. Vitamin b complex: poor intake of foods rich in vitamin b has been directly linked to mood swings, depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies. Diets rich in processed foods, sugars, trans fats are one of the reasons for depression and other mental illness being on the rise. A diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, eggs, poultry can be very helpful in improving the levels of vitamin b 1- 12. Here I would particularly lay stress upon vit b 12 and 6 for helping in cognitive functions of focus, concentration, memory, retention and reproduction. This is of particular use to people who engage in high mental activity like students, office workers, teachers, scientists etc.
3. Minerals: the role of minerals cannot be less emphasized in the realm of mental health. Calcium, iron, magnisium, iodine, zinc, lithium all play important roles in the body in their ionic form and protect us from anaemia, thyroid, fatigue, manic and suicidal episodes. Consuming a diet rich in minerals or having their supplements can prove to be very beneficial in recovery or insurance against mental illness.
4. Proteins: proteins are the building blocks of our life and particularly needed for sound mental and brain functioning. All the neurotransmitters in the brain are made up of amino acids which are found in proteins. Having a diet rich in all 20 amino acids may not require a person to take chemical based anti depressants. Dopamine and serotonin can be easily produced naturally in the body and by eating beans, peas, legumes, eggs, milk, honey, fish and poultry.
5. Carbohydrates: it has been observed that diets rich in whole grains and low gi index foods encourage a regulated release of energy in the body which in turn secretes insulin. The correct flow of insulin determines the amount of tryptophan release in the brain. Thus it's advised to avoid high sugary and processed foods which release high amounts of insulin which upsets the brain chemistry and mood regulation leading to poor mental and emotional health.
It is suggested by various studies and researches to include dietary intervention as an important tool for recovery from mental illnesses along with medications, counseling, social support and physical activity.
It is absolutely natural for your little ones to be anxious when you are separating from them. Though it can be difficult, but separation anxiety is one of the stages of development. It is supposed to fade away gradually by practicing some coping strategies. In case it intensifies and starts to interrupt with normal, daily activities, your child may have a separation anxiety disorder.
- Teach your child about separation anxiety: Regardless of the type of problem your child is struggling with, it is important for him or her to understand several things about anxiety. You should explain that anxiety is an adaptive system that signals the body that we are in danger. But it becomes a grave problem when the body tells that there is a danger even when there is no real danger. You should try to help your child identify his or her feelings and thoughts that he or she comes across when separating from you.
- Encourage your child not to seek help: Those kids who deal with separation anxiety seek excessive assurance from their parents. They keep on asking different questions in order to be cent percent sure that nothing would happen to them or their parents after they separate. You should tell your child that it is anxiety speaking for them and you can even make a plan with your child to beat anxiety.
- Create your child’s toolbox: One of the best ways to assist your child in dealing with separation anxiety is to create a toolbox for him or her that can be utilized if he feels scared. You should teach him or her to relax through calm breathing and relaxing his or her muscles.
- Teach your child to think realistically: Often it is found that kids with separation anxiety have thoughts that are quite unrealistic, but they don’t realize this when they feel anxious. For instance, if you and your husband are coming home late, your child may feel that both of his parents have had an accident. You may help him cope with it through a plan that would aid your child to detect the unhelpful thoughts and develop new thoughts that are realistic and helpful.
- Build your child’s bravery: In order to overcome separation anxiety, your kid has to practice some skills every time he faces such a situation. It is quite like an exercise that has to be turned into a habit so that your child feels better and gradually improves until he reaches his goals. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
